The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Accelerated Track is designed for students with a non-nursing Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. This program begins every May and is 15 months long; courses are taken at a faster pace than in the BSN Traditional Track.
Minimum GPAs & Test Scores
• Prerequisite GPA: 3.0
• TEAS Score: 65
In addition to meeting our GPA and TEAS score requirements, applicants must complete all math and science prerequisites before submitting an application. Applicants may be missing up to 9 hours of non-math and science classes when submitting an application, but must finish those remaining hours prior to starting classes at UT Health San Antonio.
Courses taken pass/fail:
Prerequisite courses taken as “pass/fail” or “credit/no credit” during the Spring 2020, Summer 2020, or Fall 2020 terms can be accepted as long as the course is passed and credit is earned. Classes taken this way will not be included in the cumulative or prerequisite GPA. Failed courses will not be accepted, but will be included in the GPA calculation.
The TEAS exam has been reinstated as an admissions requirement for all applicants to our May 2022 Accelerated BSN program and all future Traditional and Accelerated BSN programs.
All applicants are required to take the current version of the ATI TEAS exam. UT Health San Antonio School of Nursing only accepts the in-person method of the exam. Applicants may take the exam within the following cycles:
• August 2 to February 1
• February 2 to August 1
The TEAS exam can be taken in either cycle as long as we receive the score by the admissions deadline. If an applicant has taken the TEAS exam multiple times, we will only accept the first score within the most recent cycle that the applicant has tested.
Applicants must request that ATI sends the official TEAS score report to the "U of TX Health San Antonio." Scores must be received by the admissions deadline.
In addition to completing our prerequisite coursework, ABSN applicants must receive a completed Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college before classes begin in May.
Applicants must follow our Application Instructions and follow NursingCAS procedures. All materials must be received by the application deadline. Students with foreign college credit must also follow our Foreign Coursework Instructions.
Application and fee
A completed NursingCAS application must be submitted before the application deadline. All fees are accessed through the NursingCAS application. The Office of Admissions fee is $45 and is non-refundable. The NursingCAS fee is separate and is set by NursingCAS.
